Tenn. Attorney General Promotes Military Consumer Protection at Fort Campbell
Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper visited Fort Campbell Thursday to promote a new consumer protection guide for military personnel and their consumer affairs counselors.
The 128-page guide is intended to be a resource for military staff dealing with scams and predatory business practices. The publication's introduction states that young military service members are a prime target for scammers.
The guide is available for free on the Attorney General’s website and also includes tips for automobile financing and guarding against identity theft. Additionally, it highlights military-specific protections under the law, including the maximum 36 percent APR limit included in the Military Lending Act.
